The Levine Building at Trinity College, University of Oxford, was designed by Hugh Petter at ADAM Architects. This new build, inspired by the Georgian context, has been designed in a restrained classical manner, which complements and adds to the historical and distinctive architectural character of the surrounding area.. The site is an extremely important historic feature of the College and the impact of the new building was carefully considered by the architects.
We supplied 540m3 of Hartham Park Bath Stone for the ashlar and architectural masonry.
The new buildings have stone-faced elevations finished in our Hartham Park Bath Stone, which is a warm honey coloured ashlar limestone to match that used elsewhere in the College. Our British Stone also offered excellent sustainable credentials and is a natural choice as a low carbon building material.
The Levine Building has also recently been awarded a Georgian Group Award 2022 for New Building in a Georgian Context.
Our Hartham Park Bath Stone underground quarry is located at Corsham, just outside Bath, and is the oldest Bath Stone Quarry that is still operational today, extracting high quality dimensional block. It is a fine grained, high quality limestone from the Jurassic period. It is a true ground stone and weathers beautifully; especially when stonework is detailed.
